. for many, including president obama and senate majority leader reid, it's easy and strategic to oversimplify the answer. they've identified g.o.p. senators as the culprits and the filibuster as the instrument. but as one of those g.o.p. senators, let me give you my side of the story. what i think people are missing and what some in the majority want you to miss is why a filibuster happens. you don't hear this from the majority leader, but for the last few years many filibusters in the senate have been designed and instigated by him. they haven't been through the committee process. here's how it works. he has a bill that is popular with his party and whose title really sounds great. he knows many of those on our side, the minority, who would actually agree with many parts of the bill. but we would want votes on the items that would potentially be polyphr*eutically embarrassing -- potentially be politically embarrassing. he brings the bill directly to the senate floor, uses an arcane proceed, files for cloture and fills the amendment tree. prevents amendments on the senate floo
